Going with friends for the first time over Thanksgiving.

We have an X3 with Utah license plates. Do we need the Cal City OHV permit?

Any good tips on trails to ride? We can do 100 miles a day.


When you enter off off Twenty Mule Team Road you do not need a permit. The Town of Ransburg is nice to cuz to have lunch check out all of the old stores.

We hit Randsburg on Friday and it was crazy busy. I'm always so happy for them when they're busy, but this was unusual. They weren't expecting the crowds on a Friday, so they were slammed. It's worth the wait though. The food was great and so were the fountain shakes.

We also took a long ride from Spangler down to the Jawbone Store. I was hoping for a band and BBQ on Saturday, but they were quiet. Luckily they had opened their kitchen and were making burgers and dogs. The food was surprisingly good.

The weather was great for riding on Friday and Saturday. Yesterday was about the windiest I've ever seen. It blew snow into Randsburg and Dove Springs.

It was still in the mid 20s when we hitched up this morning at 6:30. Brrr. I'm still cold!

Oh, and as for your plated UT x3, California doesn't reciprocate out of state plated SxS, so you might not qualify based on this technicality.

Not true! It's no different then an out of state vehicle traveling state to state on vacation. I'm plated in AZ. I've been to Cal-City a dozen times other places with no issues!!

That's great. I've read a lot of posts on other forums about people getting hassled with out of state plated SxS's. I'm glad you haven't been hassled in Cal City.

What usually happens because their plated their "not required" to wear a helmets. Hench forth ~ (RED FLAG) And from what I've personally seen a few of these drivers have had a few too... many cold ones and that's what gets them in trouble. We always wear helmets and don't imbed till we're back at camp.

So, to try and clear things up I called the Cal City info number, and asked them if a UT plated SxS was exempt from the local permit.

The nice lady told me it "should" be fine. Perfect! LOL

Didn't even ask about the red/green sticker thing. Before our machines were plated I'd just get CA non resident OHV permits, and never had any issues at Dumont(12 trips a season). But then again, never got stopped, or stopped to ask.

Oh well. We did get our annual water/dump pass in the mail. Ready to go.

As far as reciprocity, my understanding is that many western states no longer reciprocate home state OHV permits. Every affected state wants you to buy their local non resident permit. That is a different circumstance than plated vehicles.

I'll just add something to keep you all confused. If you haven't registered your bikes quad or UTV for a Long... while just buy a non-resident pass. They only look at the sticker they don't ask for current registration.

Great link. That answers the reciprocity for out of state question too.

If I were the OP, I'd print that page and stick it in my glove box, just in case Mr. Ranger has an attitude.
